New agreements between Iowa State University and two Iowa community colleges will make it easier for students attending those colleges to complete bachelor's degrees at Iowa State.
Through the agreements, students who receive an Associate of Arts degree from Northwest Iowa Community College (NCC), Sheldon, and those who receive AA degrees with an emphasis in political science, psychology or sociology from Western Iowa Tech Community College (WITCC), Sioux City, will be able to transfer to Iowa State to complete a Bachelor of Science in community and regional planning—and to do so in as few as two years.
NCC and WITCC students who participate in the new program will have a clearly defined plan that guides all four years of their undergraduate study. They will know exactly which courses to take at their community college and the recommended sequence to follow to graduate in two years after they transfer to Iowa State. And they will have access to advising at all three institutions to ensure a smooth transition to the bachelor's program.
